Let's do another favorite hawker-food item today: Khanom Bueang. These are taco-shaped 'cookies', or miniature 'crepes' if you like, that have a sweet filling of white cream and other sweet stuff. They're actually pretty difficult to eat without smearing cream all over the place. The crepe-taco-shell starts out as a dough-paste and is put on a hot plate in a circular shape. This then becomes the very thin and crispy shell for the cookie.

You find vendors selling khanom bueang all over the place, mostly near markets or food centers. This particular one has been in this location for a long time so is a reliable place to get them. The stall is in front of 'Daeng Ocha' noodle shop, which has been there pretty much forever and really looks the part too. It's on the road/soi that goes from Charoen Muang road towards Sanpakhoi Market and the Kawila barracks; when coming from Nawarat Bridge, that's the traffic light intersection where Krung Thai bank is on the right.

Khanom Bueang cookies go for 2 baht each. Some vendors may do miniature versions of them that are sold at 1 baht each and are a lot less challenging to eat in terms of smearing white cream all over yourself.
